The ArtFX statues have all

The ArtFX statues have all been pretty incredible looking. Even though this one is relatively static, the other Darth Vader they did is insane! Really dynamic and cool to look at. These Star Wars statues they've been doing are all pretty top notch.

Movie Darth Vader didn't move like that

I think we aren't used to seeing Darth Vader doing action poses because the costume was so heavy and bulky and awkward that David Prowse couldn't move very well. It's hard to get an action pose when your shoulders are encased in twenty pounds of hard plastic.

Dark Horse put out a "Star Wars" manga some years ago; in it, the artist re-interpreted the Vader/Kenobi fight in "A New Hope" with a lot of samurai-duel stuff. It looked really cool!
